Brief: Reception honors students

International Programs and Studies (IPS) and the Midwest Universities
Consortium for International Activities (MUCIA) at the UI will honor next
year's student recipients of International Awards. The April 26 reception
will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. at the International Studies Building.

This year, more than 150 graduate and undergraduate students are expected
to receive fellowships and grants to pursue international study and
research in the upcoming year.

According to Roger E. Kanet, director of International Programs and
Studies, "some of the best students in the country are enrolled at the UI,
and some of the brightest and most promising among them participate in
international study and research programs." The IPS/MUCIA reception is
meant to "recognize the accomplishments of a small number of these
students" as well as "to make a broader group of students at UI aware of
these important fellowship opportunities."
